Nvidia is launching a line of massive 65-inch gaming displays

Posted January 09, 2018

With support for the Google Assistant, the entire experience can be controlled simply by using your voice. With the rise of 4K UHD displays in the past year, and a wide range of displays now on the market - some of which not exactly ideal for gaming - this is great news. Typically you want the largest, most immersive screen to game on, but before now, when you increase the size, you go down in tech specs, having to make compromises on the feature list. The BFGD TVs will include 4K resolution at 120Hz, HDR, and G-Sync technology, among some other things as well. Nvidia has shown off what it is calling its Big Format Gaming Displays (BGFDs).

NVIDIA is well known in the gaming industry for their GPUs for PCs and Notebooks. G-Sync support is also included, which is expected given Nvidia's involvement.

Nvidia has unveiled a new "technology" called Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs) during its CES 2018 presentation earlier today. SHIELD offers the possibility to stream through popular platforms like Netflix, Amazon video etc., while accepting 23.9, 24 and 48 fps playback rates.

It looks as though several monitor manufacturers will build and sell the BFGD models, including Acer and HP. The display is also ready for HDR content, as it has a full direct-array backlight that's capable of delivering 1,000 cd/m² peak brightness, with local dimming functionality.

Jon Gruden Inking $100 MILLION Contract ... To Coach Raiders
Gruden last coached in the National Football League in 2008 with the Buccaneers, whom he led to a Super Bowl title in 2002. Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season.

It'll be interesting to see how much these cost, since all the extra built-in Shield technology plus making it a low-latency panel should add some price premium it wouldn't have if it were just a TV.

The screen will feature G-Sync so that there is no tearing and the experience is as immersive as it can get.
